No prob, RRT threads around here have sorta become the RRT newsfeed. I'll make sure to get anything important I put there here from now on.

I will also be at the LXG live riffing.  It'll be nice to meet some more of you Rifftrax boardies.  BTW, bettertommorowamy, if you come to the LXG live riffing stick around and hang out after the show this time!

I'll start working on an Armageddon script later this week.  I'd say that it should be fun but the deep hurting of sitting through a 2 hour 40 minute Michael Bay movie might just kill me.

Sorry, it was my intention to arrive early and to drink beer with you guys but my friend wanted to leave and we had to check in to the hotel and we got drunk at a very busy bar and then my friend almost got arrested and then we bought two ladies some cement mixers.  But yeah, I'll see you at the next one definitely cuz I'm coming on time and planning things this time.

Oh Gods damn it.

I just started by watching a few minutes into the film, try to get the rythm before I start the riff proper.

I almost cried.

What the hell, Bay?

WHAT... THE... HELL??!!

8 minutes in, and I've lost count of all the characters I want dead.
Let's see if splitting them up into "white proffesionals," "white trash," and "constantly screaming black people" will help.

No. No it did not.

To everyone who voted for this movie who does not plan to write for it, may rodents eat your pinky toes. I know I'm cursing our intended customers, and I don't care.

I'm not ready for this.

Yeah, it's complete garbage!

I remember going to this movie only because my friend needed a chaperone on a date (don't ask).  We got in free because I knew the manager, but I still asked for my  money back.

I really, really hate to do this, but we have to temporarily postpone Armegeddon. The Englert has informed us that we cannot have the rights to the movie, therefore we can't do it as a live show.

Until we're in a place where we can separately produce live shows and online-only riffs, we have to put this one on the back burner.

I apologize deeply about this, but we will 100% have a live show following up after LXG.

More news once we have a replacement.

 :highfive: AHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAA!! WHOOOOOO!!!! THANKS YOU ENGLERT FOR YOUR CONFUSING REGULATIONS! THANK- oh!

ahem

Uh, dang, what a shame. And we were all looking forward to this one. So... heh.... so very sad.


Seriously, though, I hope at this stage it hasn't complicated things too much.

Oh, and Chris, the re-posted "How to Riff" video is still attributed to James for some reason. And the link is broken.

Let me just clear up one small thing.

We WILL still be doing Armageddon at some point in the future, just not right now, and we are not positive at this point how far in the future the Armageddon script is going to be pushed. It's out of our hands, because as Chris has said, we don't have enough time and finance right now to work on enough movie scripts to do any scripts that we can't do live shows for - because we are already signed on with the Englert to do more shows after LXG in June (full details coming soon).

So right now, if we can't do it live, we can't do it at all. That will change in the future, and also the Englert is looking for potential new suppliers who may not have the same problem with certain movies from certain distributors, which would solve the problem as well. We'll let you guys know more when we know more. Stay tuned for now, and we should hopefully be announcing the next movie replacing Armageddon within the next 48 hours (and I will provide a new .srt file to go with it, of course).

Thanks for your continued patience and support, everyone.

This is indeed sad news.  Junkyard already had his first breakdown. 

Is there gonna be a poll again or are you just picking a title this time.  I know Hackers has been discussed and I'd like to throw my 2 cents in.  I haven't heard the Tron Riff but 2 computer based movies out of the 6 so far seems a little narrow on the topic of choice.  I'd pick something entirely different from the past projects so there's less inclination to repeat jokes.
